NO BAKE Chocolate + Peanut Butter Squares

I'm always looking for simple and easy recipes to try and these chocolate peanut butter squares did not disappoint. Did I mention that they only take 10 minutes to actually make and there isn't any baking involved?

1 cup (low fat) graham cracker crumbs (about 8 sheets)1 cup powdered sugar1 stick butter, melted
1 cup peanut butter + 2 tbsp. peanut butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1. Take your graham crackers and beat them into crumbs (I used a masher to get the right consistency)
2. When done, combine the graham crackers, butter, sugar, and 1 cup of peanut butter in a medium sized mixing bowl
3. Line an 8x8 pan with foil (try your best to lay it as flat as possible) and spread the peanut butter mixture using a spoon to smooth it out
4. Melt the chocolate chips with the additional 2 tbsp of peanut butter and spread that on top of the graham cracker mixture. Again, use a spoon to smooth the top layer out
5. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Take the pan out of the fridge and using a large knife cut them up into squares

Lastly, enjoy!

Threshold Accessories

I have always been a fan of Target but they have really been stepping up their game lately. Each time I go to grab something small on the other side of the store, I always find myself conveniently walking through their Threshold aisle on my way to the register. You know the aisle I'm talking about, it's always at one end of the furniture section littered with adorable small night tables, rugs, festive lights and accessories. I've really been loving everything (really, I could post 70 things I want) but here are a few of my favorites and all for under $35

Happy shopping (and saving)!
